ONTARIO: Peel Regional Police appeal for witnesses in Highway 410 targeted shooting incidents

Jason Ramkishun of Brampton, who was not known to police, was not intended victim


INVESTIGATORS from the Peel Regional Police Homicide and Missing Persons Bureau are investigating a homicide that occurred on November 13 in the City of Mississauga and a shooting incident that happened on November 21 in the City of Brampton.

Investigators have concluded that both of these incidents, which occurred on Highway 410, are related and were targeted.  These shootings were not random incidents.

On Tuesday, November 13 at approximately 12:55 a.m., Ontario Provincial Police officers responded to reports of a single vehicle accident on the northbound Highway 410 near Courtney Park Drive, Mississauga.  Police located a vehicle in the ditch and it was determined that the lone occupant had been shot. The victim was transported to Sunnybrook Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The investigation has revealed the victim’s identity was mistaken. Jason Ramkishun, a 23- year-old man from Brampton, was not the intended target nor was he known to police.

On Tuesday, November 20 at approximately 11:21 p.m., a 26-year-old man from Brampton was operating a vehicle north bound on Highway 410 in the area of Steeles Avenue in the City of Brampton.  At this time unknown suspects fired multiple shots at the moving vehicle, striking the victim occupant, resulting in serious but non-life threatening injuries.  Investigators believe that this victim was the intended target.

Investigators are appealing for witnesses, dashcam video, surveillance video or anyone who may have information concerning this investigation to call investigators from the Homicide and Missing Persons Bureau at 905-453-2121, ext. 3205.
